Peter McManus

Clinical Research Assistant

Boston Children's Hospital

Peter recently graduated (in May 2020) with a Bachelor’s Degree in Cognitive Neuroscience from Washington University in St. Louis. He has a keen interest in understanding brain composition and functional network abnormalities present in different neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. His previous undergraduate research experiences include investigating brain changes induced by mindfulness meditation and the neural mechanisms of spatial navigation in healthy and aging cohorts; these projects sparked a general interest in conducting neuroscientific research with clinical relevance and/or therapeutic potential.

In the future, he plans to attend medical school and eventually engage in patient care, translational research efforts, or both. Along with being an avid reader, he likes to golf, play basketball, and hike in his spare time.
